PS3 Media server (PMS.exe) simply doesn't boot...

Postby rgower » Tue Apr 07, 2009 10:14 am

Downloaded the latest version of PS3 Media server... double click the .exe file and nothing pops up. Nothing in the task manager either. Running windows vista. Updated my java, rebooted, can't seem to get it working. Ideas?

See this topic about PMS.bat script, try it to see if can launch application. PMS.exe basicly does same commands to run java.exe

I tried booting from the bat... I get the screen where it says press any key to continue.... nothing. The detailed instructions are completely overwhelming to me. Such a strange and silly problem

ah yes my apologies. Running windows vista home premium, legit copy. 2gb ram, 2.4ghz. I did try running as administrator with no luck.

i opened up command prompt but don't know how to launch PMS.bat....
its in C:\Program Files\PS3 Media Server\PMS.bat... i tried:
start C:\Program Files\PS3 Media Server\PMS.bat ----- got the error message "windows cannot find 'C:\Progam '
So i tried
start C:\Program20%Files\PS320%Media20%server\PMS.bat ---- no error message, DOS just says "the system cannot find the path specified.

Try navigating to the directory first using the CD command, and then starting the bat file.
